VISUALIZING STORIES

WHAT WE DID:
The NYCer jammers were encouraged to spend 48 hours of one weekend (really only 8 hours when you added it all up) designing a new service system in groups of 4 to 8 people.

The theme of the jam was: SUPERHEROES
How we decided to use this theme was up to each group.

OUR FOCUS: Our group was interested in looking for new ways to learn. We ended up creating a new service for highly motivated, undeserved learners as an on-line platform.

WHY WE DID IT:
We were inspired by Steve, an attendee of the service design workshop, who came to learn more about service design as a way to evolve out of his current job title. We thought he could use this service to learn more about Service Design as well as many other ‘out of the box’ learning subjects.

HOW WE DID IT:
Our deliverable was a story/story board. Check out our work here:
